SPE-120 is availible in 2 formulations:

Liquid

SPE-120 ES

For integration in liquid fertilizer tank at planting or as drip irrigation, Beauveria bassiana is blended into organic soybean oil and cold-pressed orange oil in this liquid formulation.

Powdered seed lubricant

SPE-120 DRY

Beauveria bassiana mixed with Graphite and Talc for use in the planter seed box. This formulation replaces the need for separate seed lubricant.

SPE-120 with Beauveria bassiana is a plant symbiont.

Activity includes:
  • Stimulation of immune system
  • Restricts plant pathogens from entering the plant
  • Interacts with plant to produce additive biochemicals
  • Combines plant resistance to insect feeders for reducing population threat
  • Naturally occurs in soil but has been killed off by fungicides and tillage

In Soybeans: Leaf chlorophyll measured 4.2 points higher for treated plants. Plants were visibly taller and healthier.

SPE-120 grows with the plant:

Observed Results

Potatoes

  • Reports in Colorado and Ohio had over 20 bags/acre yield increase
  • In Colorado, with reducing rhizoctonia, the pickouts were reduced from 23% to 2%
  • Minimal damage from Colorado Potato Beetle (CPB) in Ohio
  • Reports from High Plains growers: increased quality; increased yields relating to limited potato psyllid pressure
